In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party has expressed serious concern over the deteriorating health of its illegally detained chief and APHC Vice Chairman, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, in New Delhi’s infamous Tihar Jail.
According to Kashmir Media Service, the DFP in a statement issued in Srinagar said Shabbir Shah is suffering from various ailments and the communal jail authorities are denying him basic facilities including medical care and hygienic food as per the jail manual.
It said that this inhuman treatment to Shabbir Shah was part of the Narendra Modi-led fascist Indian government’s policy to victimize the illegally detained Hurriyat leaders for challenging the Indian illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir.
Meanwhile, people observed shutdown, today, in different areas of Srinagar to register their protest against the derogatory remarks of BJP leaders on the holy Prophet (peace be upon him).
Most of the shops and business establishments were shut in downtown, Lal Chowk and other areas of the city. The occupation authorities deployed Indian troops and police personnel in strength in Srinagar and elsewhere in the Kashmir Valley to prevent protests against blasphemous statements of the BJP officials.
On the other hand, Indian troops continued their violent cordon and search operations in Kulgam, Shopian, Pulwama and Islamabad districts on the fourth successive day, today. The troops have martyred six youth in these operations.
